Failure to reduce body water loss in cold-water immersion by glycerol ingestion.

Abstract

The efficacy of ingesting an aqueous glycerol solution to enhance body water retention during prolonged cold-water dives was evaluated. Nine Naval Special Warfare divers performed a 3-h dive in 13 degrees C water. Divers were assigned to either a water-treatment group (WT) or a glycerol-treatment (GT) group. WT ingested 30 ml water/kg lean body mass (LBM… (More)
